Round-up of Spotlight : Continental and the contest winners

    Here I'm with the round-up of Spotlight : Continental. This time Spotlight did the food tour to Continental countries and my blogger friends have shared their continental recipes with us. We got total of 52 recipes and the round-up looks colorful as always with the gorgeous dishes.
    As I mentioned in the announcement that the continental cuisine refers to only European cuisine. I'm not sure if American Cuisine comes under Continental cuisine, but as American cuisine is influenced by the whole European cuisine, we can call it also Continental Cuisine. But Asian Cuisine does not come under continental Cuisine. I did not want to include those entries who have sent Asian recipes, but on second thought, I've included them in the round-up. But those Asian recipes won't be counted towards contest.
So here goes the colorful round-up of Spotlight : Continental
